legislation that would actually repeal the debt ceiling. it's only us and denmark that has a debt ceiling and all of the countries of the world. >> stephanie: right. >> and we should just get rid of that rule. >> stephanie: yeah, i agree. and it's interesting to your other point. even newt gingrich made that point that the financial community is going to come in. he basically said it's a political loser, stop bluffing about it. >> right. >> stephanie: but we saw the same talking points yesterday. >> yeah, the john boehner part scares me, because i thought maybe we'll have a template that was set when we raised the taxes on the wealthiest and extended the middle class tax cuts that is john boehner calls a bill, those republicans who feel like they have to vote no, vote no. and in a bipartisan way, some
8:35 am
republicans, most of the democrats vote for the bill and it passes. and if we go forward, just drop this debt ceiling craziness, or vote to increase the debt ceiling and also with the continuing resolution and the sequester, that we do things in a bipartisan way, but not necessarily with a majority of the majority in the house. >> stephanie: uh-huh. here is the president yesterday talking about his appointments. >> obama: i would suggest that everybody wait until they have seen all of my appointments who is in the white house staff and who is in my cabinet before they rush to judgment. >> stephanie: it reminds me congress woman, we talked about this yesterday -- we are really -- at lease you are -- trying to govern in unprecedented times. we have never seen the hostage with the debt limit, and every
8:36 am
nominee that the president puts forward they oppose just because the president is for it. >> certainly in the 14 years that i have been here but i think some of those issues like the debt ceiling, this is absolutely new territory. >> stephanie: yeah even the republican party -- we have just not seen a version of it that it was willing to take the united states hostage -- >> we have never seen that but we have never seen the kind of use of the filibuster that we see now to stop everything, and as you said, the blocking of appointments. there has always been this courtesy to the president of the united states to at least have hearings and -- and debates about these nominees but you know -- one person to stop it -- >> stephanie: right. and the way the main stream media covers it drives me insane. the president nominates a
8:37 am
republican, and there is outrage. >> i know and he doesn't have enough beer parties or something. >> stephanie: yeah exactly. the other thing the president addressed was gun legislation, and if it is not different this time, congress woman i don't know when it will be if you watched any those sandy hook families yesterday. >> wasn't that stunning? >> stephanie: yeah. >> i think there's a new reality in this country and the debate has fundamentally changed, and if you look at the polling -- for example 95% of americans think there ought to be background checks for everyone. and thank colludes the majority of the nra members. the nra is the lobbyist for the gun manufacturers. they want to create paranoia so people will go out and buy guns saying the president is going to
8:38 am
take them away; that your life is in danger if you don't have a bush master or something like that. >> stephanie: uh-huh. >> but the second amendment is not in danger. i'm going to try to avoid some phone calls for you, stephanie -- the second amendment is not in danger. we are not going to repeal that. we're not going to take guns away from everyone, but the majority of americans now are saying -- and the supreme court said too -- that you can do stronger regulations of -- of guns, and we regulate guns less than we regulate baby toys. and -- and so i -- i think that for most americans the debate is over. we have got to do something -- >> stephanie: and do it piecemeal if you have to. >> that's right. >> stephanie: can't reasonable people agree you have to close the gun show loophole? can't we agree that there are 2
8:39 am
million mentally ill people missing from the database us. >> that's right. and with executive authority the president can make the enforcement of the law. there are people who have been denied guns because they didn't pass a background check, and that is illegal, and yet there has only been something like 40 prosecutions out of 80,000 some number like that. but anyway so enforcing the law is a good start, but there are some obvious things i for the life of me can't figure out why any individual needs to have some weapon that can shoot a hundred rounds in a matter of minutes. less than a minute. >> stephanie: yeah. >> and i'm hoping that part of the package that is proposed by the president after he looks at the biden recommendations is a man on military-style assault weapons, as well as those
8:40 am
magazines. >> stephanie: yeah i don't think you can say it any clearer than general mccrystal says. the guns that we use in afghanistan have no business on the streets of america. >> those guns are intended to be able to kill a lot of people at -- at once. that's their intention. and -- and we don't need that on the -- on the streets of chicago or in classrooms in sandy hook or anywhere in the world -- in the country. >> stephanie: absolutely. representative jan schakowsky you are a delight. >> thank you steph so are you.

8:41 am
